I'm guessing that the 7th - 10th dates are correct. Nothing has been set in stone for awhile, "except for the date", I've been told. I didn't believe it. I didn't know why, but I guess now I do. Tara wouldn't give the false news.

Crap! The US Barista championship website lists the dates as the 15-17th. I just finalized non-refundable tickets to come out to judge... What set of dates is correct?
Hi Everyone-yes the dates were moved to the 7-10th just recently. I'm so sorry to hear about the plane tickets! Is there any way to get a credit at least from the airline? We just confirmed the dates, and havent had a chance to update the website yet-but we have a request in to our tech rep.
Crazy mad scramble over a half our of being bounced around to five different people at Delta customer service, but I finally arranged for my tickets to be changed without too much of a penalty. If it's not actually on the 7-10th, I guess I'll just be hanging round the Austin bars for a few days because there's no way they're letting make that change to my ticket again...
